The meetings on the conflict will follow a previous consultation session on January 29.
The United Nations published the Provisional Programme of Work of the Security Council for April 2019, which includes two days of meetings on MINURSO.
On April 1, the fifteen members of the Security Council are expecting a MINURSO “report due.”
Later, the troop-contributing countries (TCC) to the conflict will meet on April 9 in the afternoon, and the Security Council will hold consultations on Wednesday, April 10.
On April 29, the Security Council is set to adopt a new resolution on the conflict as the MINURSO mandate will expire on April 30 in accordance with Resolution 2440 adopted on October 31, 2018.
The resolution renewed MINURSO’s mandate for six months.
The Security Council, in the resolution, called on the parties to demonstrate political will to advance negotiations to end the conflict.
The council also asked the Polisario Front to “adhere fully to its commitments to the Personal Envoy in respect of Bir Lahlou, Tifariti and the buffer strip at Guerguerat.”
The Security Council also met on January 29 to consult on MINURSO.
During the meeting, the personal envoy of the UN Secretary-General, Horst Kohler, informed the council he would invite the four parties involved in the conflict to take part in a new roundable in March. Morocco, Polisario, Algeria, and Mauritania met for a first roundtable in December 2018.
